About Webinar

Is timing more important than talent? Does the best person get promoted? Or the person who knows best how to manage her boss and her career? You know the answer to that, but learn the secrets of fast-track careerists from America’s career guru and an Anderson favorite, Donald Asher. Asher’s book, Who Gets Promoted, was named Career Management Book of the Year. In this live webinar, learn how to help your boss see you as first choice, anticipate organizational needs, identify when to acquire skills and when to rent them, when to hog credit and when to spread it around, and what fast-trackers do differently from other careerists. Learn the advantages of champions and guardian angels, and learn why you should never, ever say “please be my mentor” to those you want to be your mentor. We’re saving plenty of time for Q&A for this one.
